No, that is a cheap training method that PK use. You can call it a sort of "Real aircraft simulator". It is hard to explain...

It appears the flight engineer looks particularly interested in the "help wanted" section knowing that there will be no seat for him up front in the 777....  Smile

What I find unbelievable is that a millions dollars aircraft doesn't have light-sensitive windshield. What, we don't have the technology???  Sad

It's a pretty old plane, built in 1988 at the very latest I believe. But Boeing does provide plastic sunshields that can be attached above the windscreen.
